the republican governors of five other states, including texas and florida. that could mean four million fewer people would qualify for medicaid. governors in eight other states have also said they leaning toward opting out. health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius said today she has received letters from a dozen governors who support another part of the law- - the creation of the insurance exchanges that allow consumers to compare health plans. but the medicaid expansion remains an expensive sore spot r others. in nevada, we turn to jon ralston, political columnist, the "las vegas sun." in texas, to emily ramshaw, editor of the "texas tribune," and here with an overview in washington, to margot sanger- katz, health care correspondent for "national journal." march go, i want to start with you. give us a sense in general about what this resistance is about, who is resisting and why. >> i think there are two main reasons why we're seeing resistance from governors, one i think is political. they don't like the health care reform law, they have made arguments against it all along and
this race is going to come down to battleground states -- >> and texas is a loss, i agree with you. >> yeah well exactly. be -- no i -- the other thing i'm thinking -- chris i'm going -- because fox news would run that footage 24-7. he is president of the black people, look at him talking to the black people, and the black people are cheering. >> yeah. i don't know although bill press made the point that there is nothing on the president's schedule, which usually means he is taking a trip to some clandestine place. >> oh. >> he may be making a trip overseas or something. so can't do it. romney says the think he did make inroads with black voters -- >> computer says naaa. >> he said i spoke to a number of african american leaders, even ones that are not in sports. >> he is so tall and black, he must be in sport. >> i spoke with a number of african american leaders after the event, and they say a lot of folks don't want to say they are not going to be voting for barack obama, but that are disappointed, at the end of my speech having a standing ovation was genero
that republican governors ought to be looking at that poll and moving on, too. some southern governors like texas' rick perry wants to vote no on obama-care in his own way. but those governors their version is to secede from healthcare, and they're just dancing for the tea party. i know that. here's my prediction. all those governors, they will all opt in eventually. why? opting out is going to end their political careers. let's use rick perry as an example since he's threaten to go mess with texas. under obama-care most of texas' 6 million uninsured are going to get access to healthcare and federal aid. but that rational argument does not appeal to tea partyers like perry, turning down federal money is a badge of honor for them. but texans are still going to pay for healthcare reform. turning down the medicaid expansion means rejecting $76.3 billion in texas alone for five years. so texans are still going to pay billions in federal medicare taxes, but those texans are not going to get any of the benefits. does rick perry really want to campaign on that? does he want to tell texans, yeah you're g

lady from texas. ms. sheila jackson lee. >> thank you. i thank you to the chair and the ranking member. welcome, director morton. thank you for your service and as well let me offer my concern for the officers who were involved in an incident of violence, to their families, and those who were impacted and to their families and your organization. we must always look to thanking those who are on the front lines for us, and i want to make sure i do so. i believe the work you've been doing is very important, but i never come to an immigration hearing, whether it is judiciary that i serve for however long and here in homeland security, and i call both assignments a privilege. what this country needs is real comprehensive immigration reform so that we're not confusing and juxtaposing benefits and the right opportunity for those who want to immigrate to this country and enforcement -- particularly enforcement against those who would want to do us harm. secure communities certainly has its failures and its value. i think it's important that we try to determine what lessons we have learned and
of the subcommittee, congressman cuellar from texas. >> thank you, chairman. thank you for holding this hearing today. i would like to thank also director morton for joining us today. i look forward to his testimony. before we begin, i'd like to express my condolences to the family of the border patrol agent who died in the line of duty on july 6th after an a accident near fort hancock in west texas. i'd also like to wish a quick recovery to hsi special agent colton harrison who was shot in the line of duty. during hargill, texas. they're in hidalgo. and director, i believe you're heading over there to visit the family and him also. i think he was shot there last week. again, thank you for showing. showing in one of the counties i represent. these terrible incidents are a stark reminder of the men and women that law enforcement put their lives on the line every day to make our country more secure. we greatly appreciate their service and sacrifice. the purpose of today's hearing is to examine the status of i.c.e. secure communities program, along with the agency's plan for the secure future of the pro
to texas saying we don't want to participate in the healthcare reform act even if the federal government showers us with money. rick scott was an executive of a company mireed in healthcare fraud while he was there. what is his logic? >> he's trying to force poor people to go to his healthcare clinics and hand over whatever money they have over to him. it's just naked cruelty and corruption. nothing more than that. it's something that is becoming more and more closely associated with the right wing and the republican party every day. >> eliot: i'm glad to see congressman, you have not lost your capacity to go right to the matter. pull in punches. call it as you see it. something that endeared to you many but not everyone who was the target of your slings and arrows and forthright comments. the question, and we've had this conversation just a few minutes ago with one of your former colleagues. when the 20% goes to the hospital and gets care, who pays for it? >> the fact is that they can't get that care. if you have cancer, there is no hospital in the country that is going to give you free
to the democratic line. john is from texas. john, go ahead. caller: i think these votes are a waste of time. these republicans have done a pretty good job of bringing every negative aspect of this bill to the public. as far as the farm bill and the food stamp program, it will never get past the senate and will never be signed into law by the presence of the united states. you are wasting your time on this nonsense until after the election. they will not be in town for the rest of the year anyway. host: windchills do you think they should be working on him -- which bills do think they should be working on? caller: i think we should get out of afghanistan. host: this was from cbs news yesterday. a tally fund that a republican repeal effort has taken up his 80 hours or two fuld weeks since 2010. -- taken up 80 out worse horn at two fuld weeks -- hours or two full weeks on the floor of the house. we have another caller. caller: the votes are not a waste of time. it highlights the disparities between the 8 parties on health care. what we democrats -- the guilty parties on health care. what the d

toward the south and into texas, we can see much more rain falling. this has been a set up for the past couple of days. most of the country is in a drought of some form or another. any rain in any part of the country is a good thing. we are going to be waiting for this to shift up to the mid atlantic so we can get some much-needed rain. let's take a look at current conditions. temperatures are warm, typical for july. 80 in annapolis, a little cooler as you get toward the bay. ocean city a cool spot with that easterly flow. temperatures right now near 70 degrees. the tube point makes a it great difference. -- dew point makes a great difference. in the mid-50's for baltimore. closer to the water, mid--60 for annapolis. current weather pattern showing just a few thin clouds in the sky. most of the clouds are off the eastern shore. we have more clouds coming in from virginia. a couple sprinkles trying to show up on the radar. mostly just an error in the radar but there are more showers showing up to the south. this is causing heavy rain from tennessee toward texas. it is stationary, not mov

by the musicologist alan lomax. >> what did your family do? where did they come from? >> well, they come from texas in the early day. my dad got to oklahoma right after statehood. he was the first clerk of the county court. and okemah, oklahoma. he is known as one of them old hard-hitting fist fighting democrats, you know, run for office down there and they used to miscount the votes all the time. so every time my dad went to town, the first question i would ask him when he come riding in on a horse that evening, i would say, "well, how many fights did you have today?" he would take me on his knee and proceed to tell me who he was fighting and why and all about it. we will show these fascists what a couple of hillbillies can do. >> where did you live, on a farm? >> no, i was born there in that little town. my dad built a six-room house, cost him about $7,000 or $8,000 for a day later, it burned down. >> what kind of a place was okemah? how big was it? >> in them days, about 1500 in 2000 a few years later, then about 5000. they struck some pretty rich oil pools all around there. all up and down the
in houston, texas. we're going to keep our eye on those live pictures. he'll be offering rebuttal to romney's speech he made yesterday. despite rounds of applause throughout romney's speech, the crowd did boo after romney said he would repeal the president's health care reform law. romney reacted last night during a fundraiser in montana saying "remind them of this, if they want more stuff from government tell them to go vote for the other guy but don't forget nothing is free. it has to be paid for by people in the private sector creating goods and services." joining me now, we have two people on our panel. i want to start here with democratic strategist steve mcmahon. the president doesn't have any events these two days. i'd like to get to the reaction of thefr freeh statement. despite the president not having events for today and yesterday, he had some schedule conflicts. how will convention goers see this joe biden being there instead of the president? >> the convention goers fully understand that the obama administration is the best friend they ever had in washington. and joe biden is a

to african-american voters yesterday in houston texas. he spoke to the naacp national convention and mr. romney asked for support explained why he thinks he is the better candidate. the crowd was receptive to the massachusetts governor's message until he addressed repealing the president's health care reform law. to that the crowd responded less than favorably -- >> i'm going to eliminate every nonessential expensive program i can find. that includes obamacare and i'm going tutwork reform and save -- to work to reform and safe -- [ booing ] >> mitt romney knows he does have a problem with african- american voters. polls show they prefer president barack obama overwhelmingly. he's committed to competing in the african-american community. >>> jesse jackson jr. is being treated for a mood disorder. an unidentified doctor was quoted in the statement saying that yak season is expected -- jackson is expected to make full recovery. he has been away from congress since late may. he was taking a leave of absence due to a medical condition which had been a mystery until now. last week his communi

there in houston, texas. vice president joe biden, someone in the higher levels of the naacp calling joe biden a friend of the naacp. mitt romney, was he a friend to the organization yesterday? >> i think romney unfortunately really set biden up well here. he came there and used the phrase repeal obama care. he signalled disrespect to the president. that's not the way to win votes with this crowd. it felt like they were being used and that was just, i think, he could have done much better. >> what would you have preferred to hear from mitt romney yesterday? >> we wanted to hear what his plan was. how are you going to make it easier for small businesses to grow and flourish? deal with the credit crunch. >> you're fine. keep going. >> what's the one, two, three to deal with jobs. how are you going to create jobs in our community? talk about, for instance, the common ground between the civil rights community and the tea party in states like texas around criminal justice reform? some sort of bridge. he came there and felt like he intended to burn a bridge. that's not good. >> the vice president, i
texas with governor perry there saying that his state is going to opt out of medicaid even to the extent it's going to cost them money, put them at odds federally, put them at odds with the federal government, potentially, in legal breach of what their responsibilities are. do you think we're entering into a position where the red states and blue states are going to diverge fundamentally on what it's like to live there. whether or not you have health care based on whether or not your governor is a republican or democrat. >> vermont is different than texas, so there's a decision, and the decision in vermont, when we embraced the effort, that was bipartisan. why wewere able to move ahead is a lot of the republicans were arguing, we have to get the cost down. democrats taditionally argue we have to have insurance for everyone. the only way we're going to have sustainable access for all americans is to have lower cost health care and we do that by having belter delivery, best practices, things that improve the delivery of the health care system. so that's the approach that vermont is taking,
